The Velvet Introvert: A Leaf on Its Own Terms November 04 2014

Who would deny the joyousness of bright red, gold, and orange leaves blowing about in autumn? No one I know.

But sitting quietly among these show-stoppers are the introverted leaves -- the subtle ones, writing in their journals, sipping tea, and turning a line of poetry over and over in their minds. 

This velvet-y soul rests in light and shadow, on its own terms.
